Mansinthe is a high-quality, distilled absinthe commissioned and created by the experienced absinthe drinker and artist, Marilyn Manson. Manson was intensely involved in development by constantly tasting samples, critiquing and providing feedback to the distillers.

Mansinthe evokes absinthe's rich history and its association with entertainers, artists and writers. Many of these artists even regarded "the Green Fairy" as one of their sources of inspiration. In this spirit, the artwork for the Mansinthe label is a watercolor painted by Marilyn Manson himself and is described as a self-portrait entitled "When I get Old".

Mansinthe uses wormwood and other botanicals, which are locally sourced and grown on a Swiss farm reserved exclusively for the finest pharmaceutical-grade herbs. The distillate is reduced to final strength using spring water from the Alps.

Tasting notes:
Unusual, yet natural green tint with light blue reflections. Slow forming louche giving way to a thick green-white opalescence. Earthy, warm aromas, combined with alpine herbs and flowers. Initial flavors are round and savory with a full, buttery palate giving way to a balanced, refreshing and complex finish.

Wine EnthusiastEveryone will ask about this bottle with the goth-rocker Marilyn Manson brand. Undiluted, this jade green absinthe has Good-and-Plenty candy aromas, and mild citrus and floral flavors that finish with heat and some licorice. Adding ice water transforms the scent to more anise-like, even a touch minty, and brings out a big, pure licorice finish that lingers on and on like the last notes of a big-finish guitar solo.
